Hello there i am a journalist in Australia and I

Hello there i am a journalist in Australia and I nnnnnneeeeed my laptop. I have just read a mile long list of websites and blogs saying in a nutshell forget looking for hp help. I have a Pavillion dv2000 and I guess I am one of many many unlucky fans of hp that have a dud on the recall or "not our problem" list. I have tried online help from you guys before and its very very time consuming and has not really been satisfactory for me in the past. I am not prepared to take that much of my time again only to find a disappointing outcome. So I will just cut through all this and ask simply can you please tell me where there is an hp outlet in Brisbane Australia I can take it to for a speedy resolution to this hp derivitive admin time waster. i have the ever increasingly time consuming flickering tartan lines at start up and after a few near misses and now missing a work deadline because of it I am in no mood.

The DV series of laptops from HP have one serious flaw and that is the way the Nvidia chip was soldered onto the motherboard. It is not Nvidia's fault, it was a flaw on the assembly line for the mobo. If you can find a local computer repair outlet that works on laptops, just have them replace the mobo with one that has either been made affter the flaw period or one that has been "reflowed". Ebay has them for sale for around 125 bucks, there are some techs that will tear the lapdown down and replace the bad mobo for less than 75 bucks. That may not be the help your exactly looking for but I just wanted to give you a direction you could go. Good luck to you.

You want to take it for repair? You don't need an HP technician (unless it's still under warranty) I'm sure there are many good laptop repair places you can take it...just google it in your area, and ask for referrals befor you take it. Sounds like a display issue...the inverter maybe...

2002 Chevy Trailblazer LT Oil Pressure fluctuates.

Hello. Those oil pressure readings are completely normal for you vehicle. Actually, in a vehicle with that amount of miles, those readings are quite good. It's normal for the oil pressure to rise and fall with engine speed. Keep doing those regular oil changes and you should get many more miles out of that engine.
